An elderly woman driver was involved in a serious crash on Friday, which sent her falling two stories in her vehicle.
Loca10.com reports that the woman was leaving the Riviera Country Club at about 3:00 p.m. when she apparently accidentally pressed the accelerator on the vehicle.
As the car lurched forward it crashed through a gate and, flipping onto its roof, fell into a parking lot two stories below.
The woman and her passenger were both injured in the crash, but not severely.
Authorities transported the woman to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital for treatment. She is expected to recover.
First responders transported the passenger to Doctor’s Hospital for treatment of relatively minor injuries.
